Major transfer interest in Girona loan star Yan Couto

Girona face a battle to keep loan star Yan Couto ahead of the 2024/25 season.

The Brazilian international has played a key role in Catalonia within a two year loan at the club.

A first ever UEFA Champions League qualification has capped a superb 2023/24 campaign but a decision is incoming over his next step.

The 21-year-old right back is due to return to Manchester City this summer as part of his loan agreement with the Premier League giants.

Couto is on a list of players with current and previous links to both clubs as part of the City Football Group project.

His contract at the Etihad Stadium is entering its final 12 months with City uncertain over his long term status in the first team.

The likelihood points at a sale, with a buyback option, and Girona are ready to make an offer.

However, they will be challenged in the battle to sign him this summer, with reports from Talksport indicating Bayer Leverkusen are leading the race.
